Tartuffe - Broadway

This is the immortal tale of a crafty hypocrite who feigns honesty, human compassion, and piety, but in reality takes advantage of his naïve and gullible host in a calculating and ruthless manner. This delicious, sharp-witted, and insightful comedy/farce was written in 1664, and has been delighting audiences ever since. It also remains one of the most frequently performed plays of all time! Written wholly in exquisite contemporary verse.
